Willard Asylum Suitcases

Photographer, Jon Crispin, took on this project to present these time capsules. The video is pretty emotional--it gives you a glimpse of the different personalities as well as a sort of connection with those who've resided at Willard. The Asylum was for individuals who had chronic mental illnesses so majority of the patients never really left. The facility was closed almost two decades ago and these suitcases were the only items left to take part in an exhibition since then. Read more about it here.

Here are some pictures from Jon Crispin's project:
